    shrugs are good, your prob doing them tho, one thing i did when i used to play rugby is get a 10kg (20lb?) weight and lie on a bench put the weight on the front of your head then bring your head up off the bench slowly (reps), works your neck really well, you can do it for all 4 sides, back of neck is a bit hard, but just use your hands for resistance, your neck will be huge in no time.

    I Dont know anything else that'll do it tho.

    I remember the first gym i ever went to, at my high school, had this contraption for working your neck. Basically, you put this thing on your head, it was almost like strapping someone into an electric chair, like a leather helmet or something. It was attached to this bar, so once you were strapped in, you just pulled back on it with your head, which caused resistance on your neck. almost like a bowflex. You could set the amount of resistance you wanted. LOL, I though it was kind of funny, but maybe you need something like that. I don't know of any other excercise to work your actual neck, I always thought the neck muscles were the traps.

    no you are right that strapp with weights at the bottom is the shit but i dotn know where to buy it from see the reason i wanna do my neck at home is that when i go to gym i dont wanna take forever for a work out and certain things like running the bike doing the forearms and neck i can do it at home on days off or at my own leisure yuo understand what i mean?

    i don't know what they call the excersise but my gym teacher used to have us do it. lay on your back and lift your head up about 3-5in. and hold it there until you can't anymore, you can also turn your head to the right and left to get more of a workout. just my 2 centes

    I dont know if you can use it in front of your computer but you can sure try. I took a baseball hat, poked a hole in the bill, ran a small rope through it. I tied the rope to a weight. Put on the hat and simply nod your head like your listening to you favorite song.

    Weird Idea I know....but hope this helps
